A you tube video if I remember correctly...……..
They can’t be at the same density if you are comparing the same number of pixels, a 20MP 4/3 sensor has to have the pixels more densely packed than a 20MP 35mm sensor.. multiply the number of pixels by the area difference then they’ll be at the same density - a 35mm sensor is roughly 4 times the area of a 4/3 sensor giving 80MP at 35mm for them to be the same.
